Mt Arapiles/Djurite December Special
Location: Mount Arapiles/Djurite
Leader: Cameron Abraham
Details: Great climbing and avoiding Xmas Parties what better reasons are there to visitMt Arapilesin December? Come along and enjoy the nearby classics in the Organ Pipes, or climb something new in the shade. Our experienced Trip Leader Cameron will lead the way in his first trip for 2017. Tap into his 'local knowledge' and wealth of experience. We will be camping in The Pines, close to the action. There is no better rock to fondle than the hard quartzite of Arapiles, so contact your Trip Leader, Cameron Abraham,to register your interest. This trip is suitable for all abilities, however beginners are most welcome. If you are keen to come on this trip, please contact Cameron and send through some details about your experience and climbing gear.

20/12/2017-7:00p:30pm - VCC Club Nights @ Gravity Worx (December)
Location: Gravity Worx Indoor Climbing Gym
Leader: Mark Rippingale
Details: The VCC are holding regular Club Nights at Gravity Worx Indoor Climbing Gym. Initially these will be held fortnightly on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. For DEC, the nights will be Wed 6th and 20th December. This is your last chance to join Mark at Gravity Worx in 2017! These Club Nights will be relaxed and informal. The idea is that you can come along without a climbing partner and join in with other VCC members. It gives you the opportunity to meet other VCC members and find regular climbing partners. Or you could climb without a partner using one of the 16 auto-belays available. Perfect for those wanting to do some endurance training. Continuous climbing on these tall walls will certainly do the trick. Mark Rippingale will be the official 'Trip Leader' on these Wednesday Nights. So find Mark when you arrive and have signed in. There is no need to contact Mark prior to these nights - just turn up ready to climb. For these VCC Nights, the cost of entry for VCC members is $15, plus gear if needed. This is a heavily discounted entry for VCC members. Beginners are most welcome. Photos: Trip Leader Mark Rippingale Michael O'Reilly using some fancy footwork on the Green 25.
